Alright, Montrealers. The sun is shining (yasss), the temperature is rising (preach), and it's finally that time. Time for what, you ask? Time for First Fridays!
For those of us who don't know what First Fridays are, allow me to explain.
On the first Friday of every month, between May and October, all of Montreal's finest food trucks gather at the Olympic Stadium for some seriously awesome food, and a lot of seriously legit fun. It's every food lover's paradise, basically.
That's not all, though. In addition to these delicious food trucks, this year's edition will include a bar, bands and DJs for a truly unforgettable and unique experience (side note: I will 100% be spending all my time here, so if you see me, come say hi :).
And this year marks Montreal's First Fridays fifth anniversary, so you know you're in for a few extra surprises.
If you want to watch these 10,000-pound beasts go HAM with their 1,500-horsepower engines, then Monster Spectacular 2022 is the place to do it.
According to evenko, the event promoter, 12 of the world's best monster trucks will be competing on an all-new track. The event features side-by-side races, freestyle motocross, ATV & SXS races, and a backflip contest.
The event was initially set to take place on November 13, but it has been postponed until April 9 due to public health restrictions.
If you already have a ticket, hold onto it because it'll still be valid. If you don't, a spokesperson told MTL Blog there are still more tickets available.
Doors open at 5 p.m. for a pit party where you can meet the drivers and get photos with the monster trucks.
